NASA says the meteoroid was about 40 kilograms and less than a meter wide, and it hit the moon's surface at 56,000 mph.

It's been more than 13 years since the Mars Climate Orbiter accident but some guys at NASA are still mixing SI and imperial units.


/straight from NASA press release: "The 40 kg meteoroid measuring 0.3 to 0.4 meters wide hit the Moon traveling 56,000 mph."
